, it turns out this is important to us. what i've said to prime minister netanyahu is that given so far the talks are moving forward in a constructive way, it makes sense to extend that moratorium so long as the talks are moving in a constructive way. because, ultimately, the way to solve these problems, is for the two sides to agree what's it going to be, israel? what's it going to be, the state of palestinian. and if you can get that agreement, then you can start constructing anything that the people of israel see fit. in undisputed areas. now, i think the politics for prime minister netanyahu are very difficult. his coalition, i think, there are a number of members of his coalition who said we don't want to continue this. and one of the things that i've said to president abbas is, you've got to show the israeli public that you are serious and constructive in these talks so that the politics for prime minister netanyahu, if he were to extend the settlements moratorium, would be a little bit easier. and, you know, one of the goals i think that i've set for myself and for my team is to

. >>> we must begin with a major news story just up the coast from us here in california. it was dinner time last night, about 6:15 in san bruno, california, the routine of a normal thursday in the neighborhood was shattered by an explosion so loud it was heard for miles. then came the geyser of flames shooting 300 feet in the air and then the noise. people near the blast zone understandably thought it was an earthquake, a nuclear explosion, perhaps a plane had gone down. turned out to be a natural gas line exploding and a fire that wasn't brought under control until just this afternoon. san bruno is a city of about 30,000 people, give or take, just south of san francisco, just west of that city's airport, sfo. federal investigators have converged on the neighborhood where the gas main blew up. we begin our broadcast tonight from the scene. our own kristen welker and miguel almaguer are there for us tonight. miguel, good evening. >> reporter: brin, good evening. the national transportation safety board is leading this investigation. the blast has already been called a state of emergency
that caught fire. you can see behind us just four or five homes totally leveled. fire crews not doing anything over there. a few minutes ago we heard a very loud explosion. we didn't know what it was. turned out to be this white station wagon, some kind of car explosion. that's another thing crews out here have to deal with. we are right next to what we think was ground zero. you can see everything is completely leveled. to give you an idea how hot this fire was, want to show you this. look at the back of this white volkswagen, the heat just melting this taillight. if you want to the front, you can see that the explosion caused the concrete to travel a great distance. just lying here on the windshield of this car, a big chunk of it. one of the big problems firefighters are dealing with is the wind. you can see it on this crime scene tape blowing around and see it with this smoke. that's helping to spread the flames. and the wind has died down. that is the good news. hopefully fire crews will soon be able to get an upper hand on this blaze. the latest figure we were told is 50% containment. som

for us tonight. thank you. in afghanistan, the taliban has been using this controversy to win new recruits. today, cbs news obtained taliban leaflets that urged villagers to join them in seeking revenge. mandy clark is in kabul tonight. >> reporter: the leaflet said that america is the biggest enemy of islam and called on muslims to take revenge for the burning of the koran. the leaflets have been handwritten and dropped in paktia province. cancer they've been distributed taliban on motor bikes to small villages. most villagers are illiterate, so the leaflets would have been left with imams to read out in mosques and spread the word that way. the taliban has capitalized on the controversy at the holiest time of the year for muslims, a time when the mosques will be packed with followers. mandy clark, cbs news, kabul. >> smith: we want to bring in juan zarate. good evening. >> good evening, harry. >> smith: how much damage has already been done by this? >> well, harry, some damage has already been done. we've seen protests in muslim capitals around the world. we just heard about the

. >> good evening, keith. thank you for that. thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. plenty of chaos to sort out from this day of news and not just the hardcore book burning wing nuttery chaos coming out of florida. there's also the republican senate primary now newly starring sarah palin and a tea party candidate who says that abstinence is not enough. we all must always abstain from ourselves. as well if you know what i mean and one of the most political fake campaigns and the rachel maddow staff vote for the most unhinged campaign speech and it had a lot of competition. that's coming up this hour. we begin with the extremist christian pastor in florida who was planning to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 by burning copies of the koran. he has now changed his plans twice. pastor claimed in a press conference this afternoon he was canceling his koran burning because the imam behind the planned islam cultural center in downtown manhattan agreed to move the project away from the hollow grounds of the orlando burlington court factcy building, blocks away from the wo
to the town. describe to us what you have seen. >> people really are here with hair on their arms burned off and intense wall of heat. everyone was running for their cars and out in the streets to get a source for the fire that quickly spread. it was difficult to outrun and many people jumped in their cars and barely made it out in the nick of time. no one has been able to go back into the blast zone and everyone is unsure who made it out, who didn't make it out. there really is a bunch of confusion. folks are trying to look for answers and they are hoping to get that at the press conference that should start in a few minutes. >> miguel, thank you so much. we want to let people know we will take that news conference live when it happens. >>> florida pastor terry jones has issued a new ultimatum and the clock is ticking, literally. the man at the center of the new york mosque controversy, imam feisal was told to call them and let them know whether or not the proposed cultural center will be moved further from ground zero. here's what had he to say. >> it's crystal clear. it's 1:20 right now a
on over an hour. the term wide ranging is going to be used a lot. >> how about long-winded. >> we had a ton of topics, the first focused on the economy, one or two on the pastor, and more on the growing phobia with islam around the country. i would say he was most passionate at the end when he made a case for the right and religious freedom and for the rights of muslim americans to have the same rights as everyone else in the country. the passion he showed there was probably greater than he answered on any other question. frankly it's interesting. he mixed it. it was passionate and mixed in with patriotism in a way even some of his critics on this issue will say it was a very eloquent answer to say the least. >> in contrast to that, let's see what his passion, quote, unquote, was, when talking about stimulus and job growth. let's watch. if you want the same kind of skewed policies that led us to this crisis, republicans are ready to offer those. if you want policies that are moving us out, even though you're frustrated, change isn't happening as fast as you would like, then i think de
